Nile Water House, Executive Director: Commercial and Finance at East Yorkshire College with new electric vehicles.

To help provide new courses, the college has invested in two state-of-the-art EV models, the All Electric Ford Mustang Mach-E and the Toyota C-HR hybrid, following a successful bid in the Skills Accelerator Development Fund.

The fund is part of the government’s blueprint for restructuring the technical skills system to better support the needs of the local labor market and the wider economy.

This new initiative has been run by employers, colleges and other providers to identify the skills needs of an area, and to initiate the process of changing the provision of technical education so that it meets the demand for skills. Do it and move on.

Our curriculum is always designed to meet the needs of local employers. Due to the rapid changes in the automotive industry, and the government’s goal of moving to zero-emission motors by 2035, the curriculum for electric motors is evolving in interesting ways to meet the needs of industry and society. Our learners will be ready for the future.

Electric vehicles have been around for some time, but the incentives – and eventually the regulations – will change and they are already accelerating the process of switching to electric. It is hoped that the development of EVs will have a significant impact on the environment which we all hope will happen, but inevitably, it will also change the way we all use our cars and once they grow up If the scale is adopted then the visit of the mechanic will not be the same.

Tech giants and the growth of the current automotive industry have led to significant changes beyond the bonnet.

A major overhaul of the entire design and function of the vehicles has begun.

The new Mustang Mach-E has state-of-the-art technology that is far more advanced than most of us standard car models.

The Mustang has state-of-the-art connectivity, in-car communication and entertainment systems, wireless smartphone integration and voice recognition, as well as driver assistance features such as ESU steering. It connects to an app that allows tracking, remote locking, and even monitoring tire pressure.

We are all moving towards a brave new world of AI in cars and at East Riding College we are preparing our students and technicians for the exciting future that lies ahead.

Along with these exciting developments, there is a practical, necessary need for more charging points to make our journey easier.

Demand for this specialty has grown significantly as a result of recent corporate scandals.

Lack of expertise has already been identified, which is why at East Riding College we are already ready to train future electric vehicle charging point installers.

Without them, none of us would go very far!
